Brownian dynamics simulations of the recognition of the scorpion toxin P05 with the small-conductance calcium-activated potassium channels.

The recognition of the scorpion toxin P05 and the small-conductance, calcium-activated potassium (SK) channels, rsk1, rsk2, and rsk3, has been studied by means of the Brownian dynamics (BD) method. All of the 25 available structures of P05 in the RCSB Protein Data Bank determined by NMR were considered during the simulation, which indicated that the… CONTINUE READING
